More than 80 American athletes have sent medals they won at the Rio Olympics to U.S. Olympic Committee headquarters to be shipped to games organizers, who will replace them due to flaking, black spots and other damage.
Tucked into the more than $257 million the USOC spent in 2016 was a $10 million payment to the International Olympic Committee designed to give the United States a better chance of hosting an Olympics someday _ possibly in Los Angeles in 2024.
The youngest Olympian from U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit in Fort Benning, Spc. Dan Lowe, 23, will compete in two events - air rifle and 3-position rifle - at the Rio Olympic Games. “Win or not, I want to walk away saying I left nothing on the table,” he said.
